Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol (Tom Cruise) in Theatres on December 16, 2011

Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (2011)

Review: The gadgets were cool especially the IPAD-controlled hallway image... Breathtaking scenes during Tom Cruise's dangling outside Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building... highly action-packed and entertaining movie. Though Tom Cruise is growing old... Nooooooo! =)

"Stylish, fast-paced, and loaded with gripping set pieces, the fourth Mission: Impossible is big-budget popcorn entertainment that really works." -

"[Bird's] fresh touch gives breathless energy, tremendous excitement and, above all, humor to what could have been a wearying genre exercise." - Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune

"There's a good chance you'll get so caught up in what they're doing, you won't even notice how stiff and inhuman the actors appear." - Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News

"As usual with the series, the movie combines a plot line a toddler could understand with gadgets that would baffle an engineering Ph.D." - J.R. Jones, Chicago Reader

"The real mission is to renew a stale franchise, and here Ghost Protocol largely succeeds, on the strength of good action scenes - including an IMAX-enhanced Dubai skyscraper dangle by Cruise - and the good humour of a well-chosen cast." - Peter Howell, Toronto Star

"Ghost Protocol is a very good thrill ride and Cruise is better than he's been in a long time." - Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor

"Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol was directed by Brad Bird (The Incredibles), whose first stab at a live-action feature preserves the buzzy exhilaration and carefree absurdity of a cartoon." - Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle

"A largely successful attempt to reboot the moribund franchise that turns out to be probably the most entertaining installment since Brian De Palma's series opener from 15 years ago." - Lou Lumenick, New York Post

"Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol is easily the best of the lot." - Claudia Puig, USA Today

"I'm thinking it, so I might as well say it: Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol is no Fast Five." - Richard Corliss, Time Magazine

This is not just another mission. The IMF is shut down when it's implicated in a global terrorist bombing plot. Ghost Protocol is initiated and Ethan Hunt and his rogue new team must go undercover to clear their organization's name. No help, no contact, off the grid. You have never seen a mission grittier and more intense than this. -- (C) Paramount
